Time for action - MyGovID is now live and Auskey will be redundant from April 2020

MyGovID is the Australian Government’s newly launched digital identity provider that will replace all Auskeys from 1 April 2020. MyGovID is a personal identifier that will eventually be relevant for multiple government agencies and services and is entirely separate from an individual’s myGov account.

There are a few main steps to be taken to use your new myGovID, summarised briefly by the following:

1. Review your details on the Australian Business Register and update where necessary
2. Download the myGovID app and complete the set up by scanning in your proof of identity, two forms from either:

I. Medicare Card
II. Passport
III. Drivers licence

3. Link your BAS agent registration to your myGovID in the relationship access manager (RAM), you can also set up others (staff) to access your clients from here.
There may be additional steps to undertake depending upon the software that you use to lodge information with the ATO, we will provide separate information on this.

AAT will be hosting an online session with Assistant Commissioner Colin Walker to walk you through these steps and answer any questions pertaining to your individual circumstances on 12th December from 1-2pm AEDST, QLD 12PM - 1PM, SA 12:30PM - 1:30PM, NT 11:30AM - 12:30PM & WA 10AM - 11AM.
